Diner Reviews
  • "Second time we've been there and have not found anything we do not like. The portions are expensive, but HUGE. Left with a bag of leftovers rather than hungry (unlike other "fine dining" places we've tried)."

  • "Received a Talk of the Town Gift Card for my Birthday and decided to use it here.The waiter was very pleasant & friendly. Ambiance was nice & it wasn't too loud. The food, however, was a huge disappointment. Their lobster bisque included lump crab meat -found shells & too much paprika. I had the dried cherry & goat cheese salad- hardly any dressing & no flavor. My husband had the wedge salad- drenched in too much dressing. The steaks are cooked in an Oak & Citrus flavoring- does not blend well with the steak. Frankly, it ruined the steaks for us. We had high hopes for this restaurant since it was on the list with other top dining establishments such as Johnnie's and Charley's, but unfortunately it was a huge disappointment."

  • "we eat at fishbones for special occasions throughout the year. it started with anniversary dinner when the place opened and continues each year. we have never been disappointed with our choice of celebrating our important dates at this excellent place"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Beware. If you order a scotch, for example, and it is listed or quoted at one price, you get charged 2 to 3 dollars more if you want ice and water or soda water and they do this without your permission or foreknowledge. This is deceptive. I felt tricked. This is not a respectful way to treat customers."

  • "Everything about fishbones is terrific. We have been to the Lake Mary Fishbones 3 times in the past few months and every time we had a wonderful experience."

  • "My wife and I had a night out recently at Fishbones and the food was great as always. We highly recommend the steak and lobster combination."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I figured we were in for trouble when our OpenTable reservation couldn't be located. The surly young ladies @ the front seemed nonplussed by our OpenTable confirm, but did find us a table. We ordered 2 of the featured "oyster flights", but only 1 arrived; the 2nd came quite awhile later after we pointed out the error - with lots of shell bits added in, really unpleasant. On taking away 1 of the oyster plates our server dumped the water on my wife, me & our side of the table. The clean-up was slow in coming & perfunctory. The fish we ordered was fresh & well prepared, my son's steak was tough & sinewy. The "gingered" vegetable side was devoid of ginger & featured undercooked zucchini & overcooked yellow squash. Definitely an off night."

  • "Waiter very adapt to taking care of guests. Great food. Great beer. Great coffee."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "One of the worst meals I have had in recent memory! I had a bone in ribeye and my wife and daughter had the flounder special. The steak was so tough it was pretty much inedible. My wife and daughter's grouper was to say the least "not very fresh" even though it was on the special-you could smell it the old fish odor as they brought it to the table. The waiter tried very hard, but the kitchen seemed not to be in sync. We saw several other tables complaining and sending back food. I do not send food back nor do I complain and try to get a free meal. I noticed when we arrived on Saturday night at 730 pm that there were plenty of parking places and there were plenty of tables available..I guess the word is out, what a shame, Used to be great"

  • "This place is my husband and I favorite restaurant. The food is amazingly fresh, well prepared, nothing short of delish! You got to try the house margarita- OMG, amazing! Our dining experiences here is always money well spent!"

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Met another couple for dinner. Appetizer (Bleu Chips)was fair, not up to standards. It was a bit too salty, and greasy. One salad (house, not wedge types also served at table) had a bit too much dressing. Main courses were fair."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food was good, but the server was very slow to great, failed to clear extra place settings and menus, and was generally unattentive. Our table was in the back by the bar, and every time the door opened we where hit with a strong breeze, and overwhelming smell of Citrinella Candles. I've eaten here before, and not had a bad experience. The timing was unfortunate since it was my wife's birthday."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Inattentive and slow service. Errors on plate went unnoticed. Missing elements were also unnoticed. 2 hours between seating and meal. Food arrived cold. Drinks were the cost of entire bottles of alcohol, and were weak. On the other hand, dessert was very good"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Portions are very generous is what stands out most. Also pricey. Really nice salads. Fresh lettuce and ingredients. Seafood best option as the fried shrimp was excellent. My sister had the grouper which was also delicious. Great for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • " My friend introduced me to your place. She comes here every year for her birthday and she loves it. I must admit I am fascinated by the food and atmosphere. I will visit you guys soon."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Outstanding food and service. We had a dinner reservation at 6PM and were seated promptly in the dinning room. Also, we were offered a sushi appetizer of the chefs choice verses the standard birthday /dessert, which was Dish. Try the whole red snapper for taste and presentation served with vegetables and rice, superb. I did note though we did not attend the happy hour from 4-6:30 pm offered in the lounge indoors had a sushi bar and the outdoor patio had some tabletops with fire-pits with attractive outdoor decor seating was standing room only...the place was buzzing."

  • "So I ordered a starter salad and got through most of the salad when I realized the metal plate was dirty, no I'm not overreacting. There was food caked on the sides of the plate, like lots of food (probably just didn't come off in the dish washer) but I was grossed out to say the least. I wish I would've noticed it sooner. My salad was covering up the dirtiness so I didn't realize it. Other than that, service was mediocre and the food did not wow me for the price. Could've got better food at Bonefish."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Our experience was not too good. We were a little upset that most of the fish entrees were already pulled from the menu prior to our reservation at 6:45 PM. I feel that running out of grouper, tilapia, and mahi-mahi on a Holiday is not acceptable. My two kids meals also were brought out about 10 minutes after the rest of the table."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Four issues: my steak was served lukewarm; side item was forgotten; requested that steak bone be cut off and it was not; wife's shrimp was cold"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated Father's Day at Fishbones and requested our favorite server Jim. His service was excellant, as always, and the food was delicious. The only downside was I had attempted to increase our seating number from a party of two to a party of three on Friday and when I phoned to do this was told there was no more capacity available and an increase could not be accomodated. So my party of two arrived on Father's Day and were promptly seated at a booth that could accomodate a party of four - go figure. This is not the level of customer service I have come to expect from Fishbones."

  • "food is always excellent here. disappointed that they were out of the smoked fish dip but the crab dip was good. You can't beat the free 22oz new York strip steak for dad."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was a first visit to FishBones for my husband and me as well as our daughter & son-in-law. We were presented with a complimentary appetizer of very fresh ahi tuna for the table. We enjoyed Caesar salads with their wonderful fresh baked bread. All of our dinners were fabulous (my Prime Rib was also enjoyed as another meal at home). My husband's pork chop was perfectly done and he enjoyed it to the bone. Another diner had stuffed scallops & shrimp, also wonderful. During dinner we admired the décor of the restaurant. It is definitely above average in the details from the wood paneled, coffered ceiling to the aquarium and attractive seafood bar. We will definitely be enjoying dinner at FishBones in Lake Mary again!"

  • "We have been fans of FishBones since they opened. The spicy Tuna Roll is the best you can find anywhere and prime rib as well. Dinner for six and everyone had a perfect meal and loved it. Service and personal attention was exceptional as was all the food. This is one of our favorite restaurants and fortunately is close by."

  • "The salmon my husband had was good, my fried shrimp was butterflied and overly breaded. Our rice and vegetables were luke warm. Because of our opentable reservation, the manager served us before dinner an interlude of ahi tuna and a lemon shortbread cookie at dinner's end. Very thoughtful."

  • "Fishbones in Lake Mary is a place that everyone must visit at least once. If you are like us, once will be enough to convince you to return again and again. The menu is diverse, fresh and full of seasonal goodies. The chocolate cake is perhaps the best I have ever had. The service was impeccable. My wife and I went there last weekend for no special reason. We just were overdue for a great dinner out, and Fishbones did not disappoint."

  • "Fishbones is one of those places that if you've never been there, you'll be kicking yourself for waiting so long to go. With an amazing staff to great and serve you, the experience is enjoyable from start to finish. The atmosphere is casual enough for jeans, yet fancy enough for full dress. Add to that, a substantial wine list and a menu that will satisfy just about anyone, this restaurant is a true gem that will have you coming back again and again for any occasion. Don't let the name "Fishbones" fool you, though. This restaurant doesn't serve just seafood, but also delivers the most succulent Filet, Prime Rib, Pork Chops, and assorted Fowl you'll find anywhere. This is a 5 star restaurant at 3.5 star pricing. So don't delay, go today!"

Every now and then something is not cooked correctly but it is always taken care of by the staff and management. We would recommend FishBones for just about any occacison. Nice atmosphere and very attentive staff."

The food was beyond excellent. Both of our meals came out perfect and both dishes had such great flavor. This was our 5th time there and we have tried something different on the menu each time and have been extremely happy each and every visit. We can't wait to go back again."
